The Book Launch for Dr Katherine Johnson's Mediation Quest books was a huge success. ADRA is proud of Katherine and everybody who came to support this significant moment. Please see attached a PDF of the speech given and a gallery of photos taken on the night.
ADRA is proud to have submitted our response to the recent Consultation Paper 18, particularly on the definition of mediation. We largely supported the Bar Association's submissions. Our submissions are now published with this post.
We hope that the submissions help to educate the public on the industry of dispute resolution.
